Handmade Earrings from Chiang Rai, Thailand

Have you heard of a tribe called Akha? It is an ethnic group who live in small villages up in the mountainous regions in countries like Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, and Yunnan Province in China. Traditionally, women from Akha tribe wear black shirts embroidered with cuffs and lapels, broad leggings around the calves. What is unique about their costume is the headdress worn by women adorned with silver bauble and coins 🙂

I have a friend who is from the Akha tribe, and she makes a living by making handmade earrings. I love her designs because you can see how she matches the colored threads with Akha-inspired patterned piece of cloth.

They have a variety of colors depending on your likes. Isn’t it great you can select the pair that just perfectly matches with your dress of the day? It just makes the start of your day bright 😀
